Norton Motorcycles V4CR – Cafe Racer 2022

According to Norton Motorcycles

Still in Prototype Phase!

The V4 Café Racer is the rebellious younger brother to the V4SV, sharing the same superbike DNA but differing in attitude and emotion. It’s stripped-back fairing reveals Norton’s technical artistry and craftsmanship, naked with nothing to hide. And while the V4CR embraces nostalgic design cues and Norton character, it’s all about the present moment. A modern incarnation of the past.

For the rider that craves adrenaline, the V4CR stands up to the mark. One of the most powerful British café racers out there wielding 185bhp, it shares the same engineered advancements of the V4SV. Our relationship to the TT is evident in both speed and power, and exposed elements reveal the uncompromising quality beneath.

The V4CR bears its shoulders in a firm stance with distinguished air intakes at the front of the bike – visually creating a front-heavy illusion, facing the road in defiance. All structural lines, from the sculpted swingarm to the compact tail unit, fly into the distance. Defining a raw energy that’s wrapped up in a rush. So tactile it transcends the separation between bike and rider, connecting the two as one ready to take on the horizon. All about presence, this super café racer shows up with confidence to the moment. Just like its rider taking life by the reins and seizing every opportunity. The V4SV was born at the TT, but the V4CR follows whatever road it wants.
